Directed by Sam Taylor-Wood, a well known artist but first time director, 'Nowhere Boy' is a movie portrait of the young John Lennon. It stars Aaron Johnson in the lead role as Lennon goes through a difficult adolescence in Liverpool - estranged from his mother Julia and living with his aunt Mimi. This is also, of course, the period where Lennon first forms in a skiffle group, performs at the Woolton Garden Fete and meets Paul McCartney - all of it documented here. However this is no Beatle fest, this is Lennon before he's famous. The emphasis here is much more on the family life which formed John Lennon and the two most important women in his life - Anne Marie Duff is Julia and Kristin Scott Thomas is Mimi. 'Nowhere Boy' is on limited release at selected cinemas.
